How anyone would give this place more than 1 Star amazes me! I just returned from the restaurant and I fear for my health so bad was the food! The pasta was from the supermarket , the sauce bland and had no taste what so ever... The produce was frosne or from a Can... The prosciutto was from the supermarket....... More

First stop in Recanati is Borgo Antico, where we go several times a year for my husband's work. Barbara by now recognizes me, hugs! She is truly a sweetheart, as is her husband, Hernan, the innovative and brilliant chef. Expect a charming, intimate setting, very romantic as you will see from the attached pictures. Dinner was sublime, as was the... More

Few centuries old, but the chef seemed pretty much alive. As often, we opted for the local food.

Ok, I have to say that as soon as we get to Recanati (my husband consults with a wonderful company in Porto Recanati) we go to Borgo Antico for dinner, often taking US clients with us to make them happy. This time was, as previous meals, simply divine. Look at the pictures! Barbara and Hernan, the owners could not be... More

I guess so... I haven't tried the other ones. Walking around in this city, we asked several people which was the best restaurant and we always got the same answer.... 'The Borgo'. They may be right.
